Cotton candy always brings nostalgia to me. It surely does to a lot of people. That’s why when I came across Snoe’s body spritz in cotton candy scent, I decided to give it a shot. It’s like going back to childhood memories in every drizzle. It’s available at P299 for a medium-size bottle. Not bad for a price.
In fact, my first impression with Snoe is it’s a foreign brand. The first time I read a review about Snoe beauty product, I thought I will hardly buy one or that I could only buy it online. The brand’s packaging looks elegant and the name itself sounds posh. Nevertheless, I soon learned that Snoe is a 100% Pinoy brand and the brainchild is Jen Gerodias-Diaz. She started selling soaps in 2010. Today the products range from skin care items to bath and body products to makeups! Now, maybe I was right that Snoe sounds very foreign since it’s already an international brand. In May 2013, she began selling her products in United States too.
If you want to know how I came across Snoe, I was on a hunt for a new perfume when I saw it at a Cinderella boutique in SM Fairview. Among other things I saw were contouring/face powder, hair products, and body scrubs. Their Poudre Duo Supreme looked interesting but quite pricey. At more than 800 pesos, I really had second thoughts in buying it.
There are other loose powder products way cheaper than that, like Ben Nye for example though there’s only P100 difference between them. It’s still one hundred bucks, anyway. I’m not the type who will spend hundreds of pesos just for loose powder. Though I like Snoe’s branding, I must say most of their products are really targeted on yuppies who can afford those treats.
Going back to the perfume, I can still remember what my office-mates thought about it. One said my scent was like milk. The other one said I smelled like chocolate. The other one asked if that’s the flavor of my son’s milk. Actually, I didn’t mind if it seems like milk or chocolate. And I don’t regard if people think I smell like I just finished feeding my son. All of these things are sweet! And nothing’s sweeter than the aroma of childhood memories.
